Ok, so I've got a super quick blog post for you today because it's playoff season for me and I'm working on borrowed time as it is. For those of you who don't know I play on a softball team and we were on the field until after 11 pm Monday night for playoffs. Yay, we are winning but boy am I tired. Being the glutton for punishment that I am I agreed to help out 2 different friends on their Volleyball teams for playoffs which are Tuesday and Wednesday night. I'm either going to be in great shape after this on unable to move. I guess time will tell on that one.
Anyway back to the reason you're here, the nail art! I have fallen so hopelessly behind on the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge that I know I will never catch up, but I'm determined to finish it! I'll have all my posts done, albeit months behind but the inlinks are no longer open so I won't be able to share the other looks with you. However, if you're reading this post and participating in the challenge please feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments. So just what is the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas Challenge? Well, it's simple really, This challenge is set up a bit differently than most. For starters, there is the option to do weekly manicures with one week dedicated to themes, and one to colors. Or you can do every other week and stick with themes only or colors only. For the color portion of the challenge, each person is also assigned a pattern. The end result is 40 different looks all done in the same colors. As most of you know I opted to do the color challenge and you can see my previous looks using Teal, Orange, Purple and Green, Black and White, Grey, Glitter toppers, Pale Blue , 3 shades of Purple, Turquoise and 3 shades of Green.
For this prompt the color is Violet and I was given the pattern Aztec. Well, I sort of screwed up and thought it was tribal so feel free to use your imagination on this one. Or since my "tribal" manicure from a few months ago ended up looking more "Aztec" let's just say that I did this on purpose to give each pattern their 15 seconds of fame on my blog. Yeah, that sounds better than me just being scatterbrained and mixing them up!
So this look was very easy to put together and I want to toot my own horn a bit about that image placement. Look at how centered they are on my nail!! That will probably never happen again so bask in its beauty while you can.
For my base colors, I used Sally Hansen Lively Lilac and Sinful Colors Snow Me White. For the image, I used NNail plate B97 and Hit the Bottle As Black as Night. The accent nail I stamped with Lively Lilac to tie it all together. After a layer of top coat, this manicure was complete. Just like this post is about to be. I hope you enjoyed this look. I will be back Friday to share more of my hectic life with you. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
